I got the IDW Optimus kit, and I love it! Don't know if I need a Nemesis version, but I really do hope they keep putting out IDW models. This is the only official channel we have to see some of our favorite comic Transformers in plastic form. I'd love a Tarn kit. I know they have the large figure, but that's out of my price range.

A Tarn model kit that's the price and size of these model kits would be amazing! :x

I'm glad I skipped the standard release of Optimus, and I'm liking the Autobot sigils that are included!

I have the regular colored version sitting right here waiting to be assembled. He looks nice! But he should have :CON: not :SG-BOTS: guys! We are getting a SG one, and we can get a SG one of this design too! But use the :CON: symbols!

If I'm being honest he wouldn't have those Autobot or Decepticon sigils. Combatrons all the way!!

Fellow Seibertronians, oh my, do we have a feast for your eyes! The new snap together Furai model kit of Bumblebee have shown up on line and to say the figure looks impressive would be an understatement. Do you like G1 Bumblebee best? It’s got that. Do you like Action Master Bumblebee’s helicopter backpack? It’s got that. Do you like a dollop of IDW flavor? It’s got that. Did you like his WWII hammer from The Last Knight? It’s got that! While retaining Bumblebee’s humble size and stance this figure none the less beefs out at the shoulders with a nice set of wheels, giving him a bold heroic frame and profile. Even his hands seem ready to reach down and pull Spike out of danger from the first season of the cartoon. His iconic horns are present but in a slightly more pronounced curve than we normally see in a Bumblebee figure. Unfortunately his Warhammer is not shown but it is pictured in the box art. All pieces are molded in his classic colors and for an unpainted snap together model he really pops. Let us know below what you think of this tribute to the boyish bumbler who’s been there since the beginning. These images come to us from Weibo.

The backpack helicopter isn’t from the classics Bee it’s from the action master toy

You know I saw the blue and got the same vibe but I thought the aesthetic leaned more towards Classics. How awesome if it turns into a blaster right?

No no no, duh, he's right I mixed up my Bumblebees. I don't know how I could when there've been only like, what three, right? :lol:

But Classics it was more of a winged backpack right? See I had Action Master Bumblebee and never got Classics I should have known better. The color's right, and the chopper blades even have those same notches in them like Action Master Bumblebee.

Thanks dude! Or dudette...I mean either way, we coo ;)

I would even say that Bumblebee horn shape is more like the Action Master 'Bee. Well hell yeah it's always time for some Action Master love!!...wait, that sounded wrong. I mean Action Masters are....there's no digging my way out of this one...this always happens to me... But his head shape is....ok I'm just going to stop now before I offend myself. :oops:

Really need to see how he looks with his stickers applied, but as kits go he looks pretty good straight out of the box. He really does need that backpack to fix his proportions, otherwise he's super broad shouldered.

These kits are way too priceycompared to gundam, but bee may bee the one I pick up. I'm sure the primes and seekers will get discounted at some point with them milking them fir every variant possible.

On a few sales descriptions.
More importantly, It resembles said action master accessory.
Much like the hammer is reminiscent of weaponry that Movie Bumblebee used (And is referenced nowhere too).
It is a clever idea to release a non transforming Bumblebee with a similar accessory to the old 80's non transforming toy.

Anyway, if it's all about what's written, where did you see it written that it is not a homage to the action master figure?

I think out of that entire article to just flatly say hey that's the wrong back pack, may have sounded mildly argumentative or abrasive. And William is probably like me, reflexively bothered by people who make side statements and tends to stick up for the little or new guy. I think it was just casual observation I mean why come here to argue about something as awesome as TF's right? A curt statement can warrant a curt response but you both make valid points I mean if it's not specifically stated to be something then it can be whatever the hell you want it to be. When it's 'styled' after something then who the hell cares just pretend it's whatever you want it to be you know? Like just now, I decided it's G2 Bumblebee. Oh yeah, just did it, cuz I felt like it :D I'm kidding but That's how I roll ;) But, critiques always flow smoother and are better received when prefaced by positivity. That's just science.

Hey guys, it's just a joke. Yes, the person who wrote the article said "Classics" when it should have said "action master", Randomhero helped point it out so I went and changed it. And I then made a joke as if nothing had ever happened and it was right all along, with the whistling emoji.

In the end, it doesnt really matter. I thank everyone, the person who wrote the article and the one who pointed out the better comparison.

I think Bumblebee is my favorite looking one yet. I really love that the hammer is becoming a more common thing with him too, we need more bots with Hammers, like Magnus.

The chopper backpack is also so cool, and I didn't know until just now that it was from the Action master. That is pretty rad and fitting.

Man, he, Thundercracker, and IDW Megs are all coming out together, lots of kits set to come.
